Foreign Ministry refutes Bulgarian media reports on Romanian Islamic terrorist

Romania’s Foreign Affairs Ministry (MAE) refuted on Sunday evening Bulgarian media reports on two terrorist suspects, including one Romanian.

“According to an official release of the Bulgarian Interior Ministry today [Sunday] and to data obtained by the Romanian Embassy in Sofia from the relevant Bulgarian authorities, information circulated by Bulgarian media on two terrorist suspects are not factual. According to the same source, the reports were generated by a distorted interpretation of broad security measures of the order forces in the neighbouring country [Bulgaria], both in the context of a large public event in the city of Burgas and within the domestic strategy of fighting illegal migration and crime, targeting forged identity documents. As regards the identity cards which’s photocopies have been published by local media, the source mentions the document are not authentic,” the MAE states in a release to Agerpres.

Bulgarian media had reported on Sunday that the security services of Bulgaria were searching two foreigners – a Romanian citizen and a young woman of France – who had allegedly joined the Islamic State terrorist organization and were currently in Bulgaria.
